New Delhi: With the Left alliance crossing half-way mark in Kerala, Communist Party of India (CPI) leader D. Raja on Thursday said the people reposed their faith in the LDF as the literate and digital state remained neglected for various reasons during the UDF regime.
Raja said it is becoming extremely clear as far as the trend is concerned that the LDF will form the government in Kerala.
“The reason is we have fought on genuine issues and the UDF rule was in a way a misrule. There were several allegations against the state government. The state remained neglected for various reasons, for their own problems, their own corruptions in the administration,” he said.
Raja said Kerala, which is a very literate and digital state, lacked behind in case of development and other areas.
“So, we fought on genuine issues and people gave their support and people reposed their faith in LDF and let us wait how the things are going to end,” he added.
In Kerala, the LDF is leading in 84 constituencies, UDF in 48 and NDA in one while others are leading in seven.
Of the prominent candidates leading are Oommen Chandy, V.S. Achuthanandan, Pinari Vijayan and Ramesh Chennithala.
Cricketer-turned politician Sreesanh and P.V. Jagdish Kumar are trailing.
The Election Commission has made elaborate arrangements for providing online information of trends and results of counting.
